I’ve previously posted about being unable to sync dynamic widgets (i.e. Weather & Ticker) in a layout. (see here). Now I’ve discovered a potential issue with the new Windows player and that’s why I’ve decided to open a new thread.
For the past two days I’ve been running one layout with a weather & ticker widget on two displays (both with the same profile), one with the new Windows 2 R252.6-252 player, the other with the old Windows 2 R201-201.
While the old one updates the dynamic widgets pretty reliably (displays the same information as the layout preview in the CMS at all times), the new R252 player only updates sporadically if at all: For example the weather should update every hour, but this morning at 8 it displayed data from 5 in the morning. The only reliable way to get the new player to refresh the data in the dynamic widget is to re-publish the layout.
So could there be a issue with syncing data in dynamic widgets on the R252.6 player?
